Palestinian Facebook group urges rushing of Israel's borders
New pro-Palestinian group on social media site urges Arabs to march on Israel's borders following coming Friday's prayers

Pro-Palestinian activists have formed a new Facebook group calling for mass marches on Israel's borders this coming Friday.

 

The group – "Third Palestinian Intifada" – urges Arab activists in neighboring countries to storm Israel's borders in reaction to the recent "Nakba Day" events and ensuing casualties.  


The Facebook page

 

Several Facebook groups urge a third mass popular uprising against Israel, and one of them sports a "Friday of response" page, bearing the date May 20. The page, which currently has 100,000 "Like's", does not however give any details on how or exactly when these marches should take place.

 

Still, various reports in the Arab media, including in al-Jazeera, suggest that activists in Egypt, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon plan to march on the Israel's borders; and that Palestinians from Gaza Strip and the West Bank are also expected to stage such marches.
